Imam Reza’s sanctity and venerability inspire annually vast crowds of pilgrims from around the world to take the route to his holy shrine in order to pay tribute to a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad and the eighth Shiite Imam. In the past, for safety, people used to travel in small or large groups called caravans riding on horses or camels. Each caravan traversed 6 farsakhs (1 manzel) every day. Farsakh is a historical Iranian unit for measuring distance, equal to 6.24 kilometers. Passing through a manzel, the caravan arrived at a caravansary in which they could stay to rest and relax. This Iran Pilgrimage tour takes you to see one of the most important religious places in Iran.
